    Create Custom Brushes?

    CyberMartyr
      Hi,

      How do I make custom brushes for the brush tool? I can't even tell where the default brushes are kept in CS3. I have some png's that I would like to use as brushes and the Styles assets don't work the same was as the Fireworks CS3 brush tool.

      Thanks,
      Doug

          Fireworks doesn't use the bitmap brushes you have become accustomed to
          in other graphics programs. Instead, they are all "live effects",
          meaning that they remain fully editable. When you customize one of the
          native brush strokes, the resulting new style can be saved in the Styles
          panel.
